After all this "tinkering" and cleaning ... I have one question : are you going to fit a catch can... ?

Yes that's right. It has got something to with the noise. If you fill up these slots the supercharger becomes louder. You'll get the typical but louder howl (is it the right word?). I would rather suppose that the SLR has got smaller or even no slots. So he gets his awesome blower sound *slobbering*

Thank you for the invitation. I won't forget it. I already can't wait to touch OZ-land

Wink Some Head For Everyone... We all need a bit...

Here's some shots of the heads half way done. New seats were added to accommodate the larger valves and so far Eddie has managed to flow 650+ HP from these beauties. Of course in a forced application where talking larger numbers depending on final boost pressure. Eddie is also porting and port matching the inlet manifold to the heads and real 722 SLR coolers. The flow is going to be awesome! When these items are finished I'll post more shots of the final product before the engine assembly.

The guy who ported this lot is "Eddie Woods" of "Head Stud Developments P/L" Melbourne Australia who is a GURU! Thanks mate! TOP JOB!

Exhaust spring oil return duct. Don't go to hard here. Yep, the small bump.


-55upgrade546.jpg

Same.


-55upgrade547.jpg

Very subtle obstruction but irrelevant in affecting flow.

Looking down the return duct.


-55upgrade549.jpg

Numbers? not sure but the chamber volume has slightly increased by material removal & Valve shape. By doing this gets more mixture into the chamber.

Opened Inlet runner. The injector sits in that little hole.

Looks good Finny!

How long more before the head gets done? Or what is the overall time frame from start to finish on that?

Not sure, but I have to wait three weeks as Eddie is very busy. I pick them up next week.

The custom valves were sent out to be hardened which took some time as well.

I would say 2 to 3 days at least for the pros...?

This sounds like the guy from the movie Jurrasic Park ...

"We have spared no expense..."

I was thinking the bonnet lid should be modified so the SLR coolers are visible and sit flush with the bonnet surface .... that would be absolutely killer also will give you more space to work with inside and also add some extra cooling.

I was trying to find a spot to mount the catch can so that it remains accessible / visible and I was surprised to see how crowded that engine bay is ...

I dont know how much a OEM hood costs, but here is a CF hood that might be easier to mod than the OEM aluminum. (at least for me)

Hopefully the link works, if not just go to www.euroteckmotorsports.com. They are located in Florida. There is a photo of what looks like a white or silver W211 with the CF hood. The price they have it listed for is $1,800. They also offer a CF trunk as well.

Again, thanks Finny great pics.

A carbonfibre hood/bonnet would be illegal in Australia and he's very likely to be picked up very quickly (unless it was painted the same colour as the car). A Benz wont protect him for the 'anti-hooning' laws that exist in most states - the CF bonnet would stand out like a sore thumb.

Would love to use the CF job, but where I come from using a CF hood alters the cars crash dynamics and is deemed illegal for street use. SUX

Oh just seen OzE55's post... 100% correct...

Finny,
Can you tell me what the two metal pipes are on the left side of the supercharger near the pulley. I assume one is for the inflow of coolant into the supercharger. Is the other for the outflow of coolant or do they both flow coolant into the supercharger. Thanks.

Left cold inlet , right hot outlet of coolant.

If cooling the intake air is (for cars not with SLR intercoolers!!!!) limited by the intercooler core efficiency could the supercharger itself be cooled more efficiently by utilising the pipes youve just pointed out? Could the SC have a separate cooling circiut and higher flow pump??
Just a thought.

I thought of having a water jacket for the blower using the same circuit as the intercooler - but I doubt this will help massively - and will add to overall resistance to pumping the fluid all around ....

What might work reasonably well is a water jacket fitted just below the SC where it bends 90deg into the IC housing ... the area is completely open to the motor ... cooling this section will have benefits ... but finding a way to do this easily ??? hmmm not easy... mbe getting the AC to blow on here !!! LOL

BTW I heard 030 specced cars had bigger intercoolers??? Any truth to this?

Do you have a picture of this area?

As Steve mentioned, it's for the water circuit to the inter-cooler core mounted just under the supercharger in the inlet manifold. This core costs around a 3 to 4 psi loss which further stresses the pulley system.

It's going to be interesting to see what happens when the core is deleted and replaced with units of much less resistance. Increased psi with less pulley tax... Mmmm interesting...
